As a woman sets out on a journey to forget, swimming through a sea of bittersweet memories, Salt Song explores how we remember with two live performances on 5 & 6 September 2013 made for Hyde Park Picture House in Leeds. Presented by Imove in association with FuseBox, Salt Song combines film, music and poetry to trigger the senses, evoking memories of the sea, and the sea shore.
The performance features original poetic narrative written and performed by award-winning poet, former Parliamentary Writer in Residence and Keats House Poet-in-Residence, Rommi Smith.
An original score composed by Dave Kane to interact with and compliment the performance and film, will be played live by The Salt Song Band, an ensemble of some of the best musicians from the British Jazz scene, including award winning pianist Matthew Bourne and the internationally acclaimed vocal trio Royst.
Salt Song takes place at Hyde Park Picture House on:
- 5th September, 4.00pm
- 6th September, 7.30pm
